Gay Greece Travel Guide | A Mediterranean Gem!

Gay Greece for many is related to an island, which is not other than Mykonos, but gay life in Greece is so much more than that. Greece has grown so much the last years, that it is actually enlisted among the most liberal countries in Southeast Europe.

The Greek gay community enjoys the majority of the gay rights, including cohabitation agreement, while it's fully protected by the government. The locals are overall very gay-friendly, however, the older generations are not that open-minded yet.

The active gay community of Greece has led to the creation of a vivid gay scene in many Greek destinations, while its reputation among the gay travelers has been highly increased the last years, making a stop for various gay cruises as well as a gay mecca for summer holidays.

Athens is a great city to spend your gay holidays during winter and early spring. The city is the home to numerous gay places, which usually get pretty crowded on Fridays and Saturdays. On the other days, like Sundays and Mondays, the gay clubs organize some special nights like Greek Mondays and Drag Sundays.

Mykonos... Well, Greece is not only about Mykonos, but we would be lying if we said that Mykonos is not a must-visit gay destination. Mykonos has won the heart of every gay traveler that has visited it, either we are talking about gay couples or single gay travelers. Mykonos transforms into a big gay hotspot every summer, so you will find gay men everywhere. Elia Beach and Jackie Oare the most popular hotspots!

Crete might not be a very popular gay destination, however, based on its annual visitors, it could easily host more gay travelers than Mykonos. The local gay scene of Crete is pretty unorganized, while the local gay community is discreet. Cretan destinations like Heraklion and Agios Nikolaos attract the majority of the gay travelers, making them must-visit during summer!

Santorini might not be a popular destination for its thriving gay scene, however, gay couples are in love with it. It's not difficult to guess why, Santorini is among the most romantic destinations around the world, to spend your honeymoon, no matter your sexuality. The elegant and romantic atmosphere of Santorini makes it an absolute "no" for single gay travelers!

Thessaloniki is the 2nd largest city in Greece, however, its gay scene is pretty discreet and underground. There are a couple of gay bars in the city's center while Thessaloniki is the home of the first transvestite bar in Greece. You will find gay men all over the city, especially in the unique and cozy cafe bistros in the city's center.

Islands like CorfuSyros, and Lesbos might not feature an organized gay life, only being the home to one, two or even none gay bars, however, gay travelers, especially Greeks, tend to visit them frequently for summer holidays. The majority of these islands have nudists beaches which are frequented by the gay visitors, while, in some of them, you might even find gay-only beaches!

Talking about Greece, we could not but refer to its Mediterranean Atmosphere, Golden Sun, and Crystal-Blue Gay beaches. There are actually numerous gay beaches around Greece, while the areas with no exclusively gay beaches usually feature a nudist beach that attracts mainly gay audiences. Limanakia in Athens is among the popular gay beaches in Greece!

As it concerns the gay events in GreeceXLsior is definitely the most popular one, taking place in Mykonos while attracting many Gay Instagram "Celebrities". Moreover, the Gay Prides of Greece have peaked the interest of the gay locals, while many men from Europe visit Greece to support the gay community as well. The top gay Prides in Greece take place in AthensThessalonikiPatra, and Heraklion
